Auto Mechanic Certifications & Experience You Can Trust

ASE Mechanic Certification

The blue gearshaped logo that hangs outside High Road Automotive’s shop is more than just advertising. This logo means that we are part of ASE, a professional organization that is dedicated to the improvement of the automotive service industry. Our shop is not only dedicated to servicing your car to the best of our expertise but has also been recognized for improving the automotive service industry as a whole.

Many trade organizations serve as social hubs, but the ASE is much more. ASE is the shortened name for the National Institute for Automotive Service Excellence. ASE tests and certifies automotive technicians and service professionals. The certifications apply only to the individual technicians, not to the shop at large.

  • Dedicated to excellence in automotive service and repair.

  • Recognized for improving the automotive service industry.

Expert Knowledge

ASE certification is based upon both knowledge and experience. In the automotive repair trade knowledge alone is not enough. Understanding the physical workings of a vehicle, replacing parts and learning repair procedures, and making a correct diagnosis is an experiential process, so ASE requires two years of work experience prior to testing. Generally, two years of actual repair experience provides a wide range of “physical knowledge”.

The ASE written tests are challenging; almost one-third of first-time test takers fail to pass the exams. Once a certification is achieved, the technician must retest every five years to keep up with the changes in automotive technology. There are many specialties, each with its own tests, such as air conditioning, automatic transmissions, or brakes. It requires constant study and time to keep up with a single ASE certification; the more certifications earned, the more study is required.

In addition to certification, all our technicians attend training from the top training sources available.

  • Our mechanic certifications are based on knowledge and experience.

  • Certifications are retested every five years to ensure we’re up to date.

  • Our mechanics receive additional training from leading training sources.

Expert Experience

Our seasoned techs all participate in the ASE program based upon their specialties and professional development. Both owners have achieved Master Technician status which this allows them to serve as industry trainers as well as technicians. Not only do we have in excess of 100 years of experience in our shop, we have the certifications to prove it.

We are very proud of our technicians and the hours that they spend to become better at their chosen profession. Their continuous dedication to learning and the time and effort involved with the testing process to earn their certifications is reflected in the high-quality service that they perform on your car.
